  1. Greetings Mr. Miller.

  2. Jeffries? Anybody know about this one? http://cgi.ebay.com/Concertina-antique-Jef...1QQcmdZViewItem
  3. Since the real Elkridge is near me I sent a message to the seller through eBay, just for fun. This was his reply: Ripped off, eigh?
  4. Does anyone know of a link to an mp3 of John Kelly Snr playing the Ebb Tide? Jack
  5. Craig, I've tried to email you through your profile page without response. Can you update your contact information or contact me? Jack
  6. Craig, Do you have a sound file of THIS INSTRUMENT available? Jack
  7. Ted's. Great place for used violins, brass instruments, etc. They had a non-functional Italian stage prop concertina years ago... at least it looked the part. TED'S MUSICIANS SHOP. 11 E CENTRE ST, BALTIMORE, MD 21202. (410) 685-4198
  8. Mike: Wait, you could be blocking my driveway in Ellicott City! Have you been in touch with Philippe Varlet at <http://go.to/celticgrooves>? A great nearby source for CDs. Jack
  9. Hummingbear, Try to play the instrument a while before you take the step of parting with it. Others with a similar opening question in this forum have come to an appreciation of their instrument that goes far beyond dollars. Jack
  10. My most used concertina recording, aside from mini-disks made in week-long Jacqueline McCarthy and Noel Hill classes is Tommy McCarthy's Sporting Nell. With uillean piping and tin whistling punctuating tunes on a C/G and A/E Jeffries it is anything but dry. Jack
  11. In http://www.thesession.org/discussions/display.php/3474, Bob Tedrow commented Since that discussion quickly got off track, I wonder if Bob (and others) would expound on the concept of Voicing concertina reeds?
  12. Ahhh, EDITING! The one fweature of new overr olD we can all agree is an impruvement. JAck
  13. Michael, From my point of view the answer is yes. But not a simple one. I play mostly for private enjoyment and the technical challenges of the instrument. Noel really presents a system that provides fruit for lots of study. As he said last year, stick with it and 'the penny will drop'. After 8 months it is fascinating to see how the system fits the Anglo layout. Probably not. Although nightly sessions al la 'The Ice House' and 'The Porch' are not part of the program, I savored the opportunity to sit, undisturbed, in my favorite spot twice a day for a couple hours and really learn a new tune. And my mini-disk recordings of the Wednesday evening session, the Thursday concert and the Friday request hour (all of which Noel graciously lets students record for their own use) have provided many, many additional learning opportunities. Cheers, Jack (2003 NY NHICS; 2001 Jackie McCarthy @ Augusta)
  14. Jim, Have you learned them this good yet: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...1&category=1075 ? Maybe this will help get copies of all the FREE REED albums circulating... JZ
  15. Maybe not true Chanteys, but any of these should catch the immagination of 8-10 year olds without having to 'clean up' the lyrics: http://revels.bizland.com/store/product12.html! Let us know how it turns out. Jack
